Actress Ana de Armas, who plays Marilyn Monroe in her upcoming movie Blonde, believes that the legendary actress was haunting the cast while they were filming the movie. The Knives Out star told reporters at the Venice Film Festival that she believes Marilyn Monroe was always nearby when they were shooting. Some scenes of the movie were filmed in the same apartment where Marilyn Monroe lived with her mentally ill mother. Plus, her death scene was also shot in the same room where the legendary actress actually passed away.
Ana de Armas believes Marilyn Monroe was always around
Actress Ana de Armas believes Marilyn Monroe was communicating with the cast of the movie from “beyond the grave.” She said that she strongly believes the spirit of the legendary actress was always around when they were shooting. She said,
“I think she was happy. She would also throw things off the wall sometimes and get mad if she didn’t like something. Maybe this sounds very mystical, but it is true. We all felt it. I truly believe that she was very close to us. She was with us.”
The actress plays Marilyn Monroe in her upcoming movie, Blonde. She reportedly spent 3 hours a day perfecting the accent for the movie.
The director of the movie agreed with the actress
The film’s director, Andrew Dominik, also agreed with the actress saying that he felt her presence, “It definitely took on elements of being like a seance.” A lot of scenes were filmed in the house where Marilyn Monroe died of an overdose at the age of 36 in 1962. The movie, which is about the life of the legendary actress, is all set to hit the theatres on 16th September 2022.
The director believes Ana de Armas was perfect for the role
Even though the actress previously admitted she knew very little about Marilyn Monroe, director Andrew Dominik believed that she was perfect for the role. He said,
“I knew it was her as soon as I saw her on TV. It is a little bit like when you fall in love at first sight, when the right person walks through the door you know it.”
Blonde premiered at the Venice Film Festival on Thursday and is all set to hit the theatres on 16th September 2022.
